Cooper Taber prizewinning glass buildings built in 1956 (the square part). Cooper Taber was a seed company in Avenue Road. Linda Bones, Jenny Brown, Ken Foster and David Alderton sliding on ice on the static water tank adjoining the building. David Alderton worked in the office in the square glass building. Jenny Brown was a Canadian girl who was a seed analyst. She lived in Takeley, and in about 1967 married David Alderton who worked in the Cooper Taber office. The scanned version on the computer was made from the original negative; this latter may be the clearer version but has not been printed out.
